Peysekh Brownies (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Tree Nut-Free Passover Brownies)





You see, this is why we left Egypt.

Were it not for Passover, and the the needs of friends who are vegan, gluten-free, or tree nut-free, or all of the above, I would never have made these brownies, and the world would be a poorer sadder place.
OK, Here's what I made: I ground up one pound of chocolate (one 10-ounce bag Equal exchange semisweet ships and two 3-ounce bittersweet bars) to a fine powder. Then I took pulp from two green coconuts, two handfuls of medjool dates and ground those up, mixed with the chocolate powder.  Pat the mixture into a nine-inch pan and sprinkle pine nuts on top.

cool. Can the green coconut be substituted with something more available in Israel? (you can find here imported fresh liquid-full coconuts sold as a beverage but I doubt they have much pulp. there are plenty of brown coconuts). Thanks

Oren, yes, thos are the kind of coconuts I meant. They have a small amount of pulp. That is all you need.
